What is LANAP?

LANAP, which stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure is a technology that uses lasers to kill diseased gum tissue and remove it completely from the root of the tooth. The laser heat separates the diseased tissue from the rest of the patient's mouth and then cauterizes the wound to form a blood clot. Once the infected gum tissue is eliminated the dentist can scrape off tartar and plaque that may have built up underneath the gums as well as in the root area. The procedure is completed by smoothening the tooth's root with a special tool in order to ensure there are no crevices where bacteria may hide in the future and contribute to new infections. As recovery takes place, the gum and root gradually join back together.

Benefits of using laser for gum disease

There are several reasons why most patients with gum disease opt for laser treatment.

  • Laser treatments have shorter recovery times
  • With laser, you can target a small section of your mouth that is affected in a precise and accurate manner.
  • Laser treatments are typically pain-free and involve no swelling or bleeding. Laser technology is less invasive compared to most traditional treatments for gum disease.
  • No general anesthesia is used in treating gum disease with laser technology.
  • Less anxiety for patients who fear dental treatments.
  • Laser technology can help to secure deep periodontal pockets which prevents new infections by minimizing the risk of bacteria getting in.

On the other hand, laser procedures have some associated risks and drawbacks.

First, if the dentist uses too much power on the laser or the wrong wavelength, it could cause significant harm to the gum tissue. Also, there is a lot of misconception regarding the results of laser treatment. Some patients expect to see miracles immediately after the procedure and this is often due to the advertising hype for this treatment.

To minimize this risk, it's critical to find a qualified dentist who is fully trained and experienced in using laser technology. A qualified dentist knows how to perform the procedure in the correct manner to avoid harming the gum tissue or causing serious health problems along the way.

What next after laser treatment?

Once the laser treatment has been completed, the dentist will provide specific instructions on how to take care of your mouth. Follow these instructions during the recovery period to increase your chances of getting the best outcome. Maintain good oral hygiene and go for follow-up visits as recommended by the dentist. This will help you avoid future infections and ensure your treatment is progressing well.
